Title: Child Care and Development Fund Annual Aggregate Report—ACF-800.
OMB No.: 0970-0150.
Description: Description: Section 658K of the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act (42 U.S.C. 9858, as amended by Pub. L. 113-186) requires that States and Territories submit annual aggregate data on the children and families receiving direct services under the Child Care and Development Fund. The implementing regulations for the statutorily required reporting are at 45 CFR 98.70 and 98.71. Annual aggregate reports include data elements represented in the ACF-800 reflecting the scope, type, and methods of child care delivery. This provides ACF with the information necessary to make reports to Congress, address national child care needs, offer technical assistance to grantees, meet performance measures, and conduct research.
Consistent with the recent reauthorization of the CCDBG statute, ACF requests reinstatement and revision of the ACF-800 including a number of changes and clarifications to the reporting requirements and instructions. Most notably, section 658K(a)(2)(F) of the CCDBG Act now requires States to report the number of fatalities occurring among children while in the care and facility of child care providers serving CCDF children. The new data element will be required with the reporting period beginning on October 1 of 2015 (FFY 2016).
Respondents: States, the District of Columbia, and Territories including Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Northern Marianna Islands.
